About JAZZ KITCHEN
Our most cherished institutions, celebrations and rituals are marked by the presence of music and particular foods. From the rent party to the chitlin circuit, from Mardi Gras to the neighborhood wake, good food and jazz work in concert. Theirs is a rich conversation. They share a long history of co-development, interaction and mutual influence and continue to generate layers of meaning in different political, cultural and social contexts. How do food and music inform one another? What can these relational practices teach us about values we hold dear: experimentation, improvisation, self and communal expression, resilience, resistance, joy, or care? What can we learn by listening in on their conversation? What can thinking about food and music together contribute to our ability to “imagine otherwise?” Jazz Kitchen brings together creatives and thinkers working in and among these cultural spaces to share stories, generate insights and, like in all jazz kitchen’s, enjoy a good hang with friends and family.
